“True freedom is living as if you had completely chosen whatever you feel or experience in this moment. This inner alignment with the Now is the end of suffering.”⁣⁣

Less Than Perfect⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Often times, Life will give us an opportunity disguised in the form of a challenge. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
To some degree, we all know that learning to overcome challenging situations with certain people, places, and things in our lives can effectively help make us stronger, wiser human beings. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
In some ways it’s as tho the challenge in itself serves to signal our less than perfect alignment with the bigger picture of the Divine Plan set out for us. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And yet, how do we actually know when we ARE perfectly aligned? Is it as simple as having a challenge-free day, week, or year? Perhaps it’s not as linear of a process as we surmise.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Perhaps it’s more of a spherical experience that asks us to set ourselves free from our past & our future, and recognize that our seat of power is always in the present moment. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Here and now, each of us already holds the key to the lessons & insights we need to weave the web of our life’s grand masterpiece together. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
When we are able to access the learnings from the depths of our past while releasing the temptation to attach to the pain therein; when we are able to set our intentions for the future while surrendering to the higher will of the Divine Creator; there in that present moment of stillness quietly watching behind the veil of pandemonium of all that we think & do, can we discover the peace of acceptance in our less than perfect opportunity for inner alignment with the Cosmos. ⁣⁣

“Love is my last chance in life—I have to love, first of all, my own consciousness. I have to love my own character. I have to love my own characteristics. I have to love my own dignity. I have to love my own dimension. There are so many things I am supposed to love for myself, before I say even one word of, “I want to love you.” ⁣⁣- Yogi Bhajan⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
My 1st Unconditional Love⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
When I first embarked on my journey of spiritual self-discovery, the 1st challenge I took on was to know the true meaning of unconditional love. Funnily enough, my 1st lesson began with a broken heart caused by my most beloved Portuguese love who had first introduced me to meditation. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
In the beginning, there was heartache & confusion so I meditated to quiet the monkey chatter in my mind. After some time,I cultivated a daily practice of a series of mindfulness & wellness techniques that helped to focus all my energy on healing & opening my Heart Chakra. Soon,I learned to release the struggle that came with the illusory pain of loss & then, one day, it was gone. The illusion had simply vanished & I was wide awake. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
Instead of hurt, I felt giddy & delighted in the brilliant glow of intuitive understanding that arose with the essence of God / love inside me. The more I filled my primordial Cup with the elixir of true love for my Highest Self, the more compassion I felt for everything around me, & the more unconditional love I had to offer the World! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣
Later on, I found the courage & strength in my heart to forgive my beloved & let him go with nothing but gratitude for all that I had learned from him,for all that we had shared. In fact, I still love him to this day, unconditionally, & wish him all the best. He & I share the exact same symbol engraved on both our skins of the Anahata, the Heart Chakra, which has served me well as a constant reminder to tune in to my experience of unconditional love in whatsoever form my current lesson chooses to take on. ⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣
For little did I know there would be no end to such an endeavour of embodying true unconditional love, for my Self & All My Relations. With luck, it will transform me till my last breath.

⁣“What is meditation? When you empty yourself, and let the universe come in you.” -Yogi Bhajan⁣
⁣⁣
When I don’t meditate for some days, I become keenly aware of a thunderous quiver within the foundations of my inner peace. ⁣Sometimes it feels as though a raging river is roaring to be set free from the grips of chaos into the merciful light of day. And if you’ve ever seen a river run wild, you’d know that taming one once it starts flowing is no small feat. ⁣In fact, any attempt to do so alone by force can prove to be all but futile. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Most fortunately, what I’ve discovered to be the most successful method to sating the madness is also the most practical. ⁣It is simply a matter of cultivating a daily practice of kundalini yoga meditation. ⁣

⁣ “Just Do Your Kriya”- Guruji ⁣

Whatever the state of my mental, physical, emotional health, my journey of self-healing always begins with harnessing the full potential of my breath while meditating. ⁣Without fail, all the pressure releases from the crown of my head brimming over like a waterfall, hugging the steep surface of my body, & softening the sharp edges of my heavy, restless spirit.⁣ With every conscious breath I take, letting go of all resistance, I become one with the shimmering stillness in the deep, peaceful well of my authentic being. ⁣⁣
⁣ ⁣
So, as Yogi Bhajan would say, “Keep up and You will be Kept Up!” ⁣

If you haven’t practiced meditation in a while or have yet to learn the art, I suggest you find a class/ workshop/group closest to your house and book that into your schedule asap! ⁣⁣Find a technique that resonates with your inner wisdom, then cultivate a deep practice of applying that knowledge, and keep doing it everyday! ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Cuz you never know what kind of life changing miracle you can be a part of on any given day when you learn how to quiet the rumbling river inside, just enough, to listen to the Divine intuition that will guide your way! ⁣

“I don’t believe in miracles. I rely on them!”- Yogi Bhajan ⁣

Motherhood is the biggest commitment that a woman can ever take on. It is the ultimate surrender a woman can give of her Self, in body, mind, heart & soul. A truly radical harmony of bliss & chaos, love & fear, strength & vulnerability, and lest we forget, the healthy boundaries of space inbetween. For it is there, in the realm that expands into the dark watery depths of the Unknown, that a woman not only discovers the authentic nature of her true strength, but so, too, does she Rise with the unconditional love & wisdom of her sacred, savage soul. ⁣ >>>———————————}}>⁣
“Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.” -⁣

“To embark on the journey towards your goals and dreams requires bravery. To remain on that path requires courage. The bridge that merges the two is commitment.” - Steve Maraboli⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
What is the meaning of commitment? What does it mean to have greater commitment than fear?⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
Commitment is the quality of being dedicated to my cause. It is the character I project. It is a promise to be honest, self aware, and walk with integrity in all that I do. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It means having the courage to overcome my fears and shine in the light of my authentic self. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It means never giving up on the hopes & dreams for my highest good and that of my community (Common=Unity)! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It means standing up to those who would doubt my intentions & abilities with nerves of steel & a heart of gold! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ It means proving that I have the ability to do whatever the job takes with sheer will power, talent, and dedication! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ It means leading with an open heart and loving with fierce, unconditional passion even when it hurts! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ It means not taking no for an answer when there is a more practical, creative solution for the common good! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It means being patient & compassionate for those who fear progressive change on the path of conscious action. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ It means rising to meet the challenge of co-creating a harmonious bridge of communication where everyone’s voice is heard, supported, and respected. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ It means having unwavering faith in the power of community and harmonious communication to effect change on a local & global scale! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
It means cultivating a steadfast Attitude of Gratitude for the abundant blessings that come from turning every challenge into an opportunity to learn & grow! ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣

"When we are faced with a very difficult situation we have a choice: we can either be resentful, and try to find somebody or something to blame for the hardships, or we can face the challenge and grow."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes, I struggle to comprehend how certain people can be so naturally good at putting others down to make themselves feel better or more significant in some way. It would seem our world is full of people who judge, gossip, & vilify using methods like the cruel whip of a malignant tongue, piercing looks of disdain, or downright passive-aggressive sabotage. What is most especially painful is when this happens within families and between friends. As a very sensitive empath on a warrior’s path of mindfulness towards love, compassion, & harmonious communication with All My Relations, there are times when it simply breaks my heart. And yet, the journey continues.
By now, I've learned not to be so naive as to seek & wait for the approval & support of all my family & peers. Perhaps just a select, deserving few. The truth is, even if my dreams & visions are for the common good, they can only successfully manifest on a foundation of trust, integrity, patience & commitment. And in order to create that quality of steadfastness, one must first have the courage to cultivate the authentic self and live with fierce passion & purpose no matter how difficult the circumstances. Just like a flower with pure longing for life finds its way out of the dark comfort of the seed and into the light, so too must we find the courage to overcome the obstacles on our path towards greatness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
"There is no point fighting against the challenges of life, or trying to avoid or deny them. They are there, and if the seed is to become the flower we must go through them. Be courageous enough to grow into the flower you are meant to be." - Osho ☀️🌦🌱🌻🐝🙏🏽 #mitakuyeoyasin 📸🌟🙏🏽: @carmendelprado

"If I could choose, I'd be bare feet with animals all around me and living in a tree house. Like Tarzan and Jane, that's my dream. I'm at my happiest around nature." - Gisele Bündchen ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Walking barefoot in nature is a grounding practice known as 'Earthing'. According to physics , it helps to discharge built-up static electricity in the body directly into the Earth’s natural surface, hence the term 'Earthing'. Think of it like synchronizing your body's positively-charged biorhythms to the Earth's powerful and abundant supply of antioxidant, free radical-busting electrons.
Studies show that 'Earthing' can:
---> Reduce inflammation
---> Improve quality of sleep
---> Reduce chronic pain
---> Improves your mood
---> Reduce risk of cardiovascular disease
---> Regulate the secretion of the Cortisol stress hormone
---> Neutralize highly reactive molecules that damage cells called free radicals ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It's hard to argue with the clear scientific benefits that result from such a simple practice as walking barefoot, don't you think? And honestly, IT JUST FEELS GOOD! So next time you get a chance, take your shoes off, feel the Earth beneath your soles, allow your overcharged body to 'plug in', and let the grounding begin. Suggested time: 20mins - 2 hours/day. 👠👟🤸🏽‍♀️🐾🏝🏜🏞😁 >>>————>

"Enjoy them while they're young. They grow so fast."
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It wasn't until I became a mother that I realized how little I actually comprehended the philosophy of time within this miracle called Life. One aspect in particular, is how quickly children grow. From the moment my son first came into the world, the nature of time as I knew it expanded in the most humbling way.
In the beginning, time slowed to a hushed pulse. Seconds hovered over the steady rhythm of his beating heart, minutes hinged on the pace of his incoming & outgoing breaths, hours drifted in & out of night and day. Later, as days turned to months, months into years, it became clear that my entire concept of time became measured by how much he’d grown. All of a sudden time wasn’t merely blooming by the seasons of elements, but by the intrepid rate of his tiny growing feet! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“Enjoy them while you can. They grow so fast.”
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today, in the throes of a rushing society, whenever I need to cultivate more patience or I see my son needs tempering, I think back on those moments when he was first born, when time slowed down, and I tune in to that same dreamy fog of alert awareness. There in that timeless space, I am reminded of how precious 'time' really is. I remember every moment together is sacred and holds an opportunity to learn, forgive, grow & uplift eachother. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If time is all we have, then we must use it wisely. No matter how difficult the challenge, invest in your child here and now. Don't miss the chance to enjoy your little miracle of life in the bloom of their innocence. “Enjoy them now. They grow so fast.” >>>-------> 🤱🏽⏳👶🏽⌛️🚶🏽‍♂️👀
